Jack and Helen Anderson have more than 50 years of service combined, yet there’s no sign of them slowing down. The two currently serve as the secretary and president of the Lions Club of Sun City – Huntley, respectively. “The Lions has always been a family thing,” says Helen. “It’s something we can do together, and it has been a lot of fun.”
There are very few things out there that make me want to crawl out of my skin. The oddest among them is running a hand over wallpaper. To me, it’s the equivalent of running a fingernail over a chalkboard. Until a month ago, worms were not my list of Things That Make You Go Ugh.

Friends and co-workers remember Jim Van Fleet for his love of the community, as well as his service to Sun City. “He used his business background to help in the decisions he made for the good of the community,” said Linda Davis, vice president of the Sun City Community Association of Huntley board of directors.
Jim Van Fleet, a friend to many in Sun City and respected community leader, ran out of time on the morning of Jan. 12.

What better way to devote a lifetime? Jim lived a life of giving rather than taking.

It’s January, the month when many Sun City seniors make their New Year’s 2015 resolutions! According to Suburban Senior’s Magazine (December 2014 to January 2015), “… a recent study found that 22 percent of people give up their resolution(s) within the first week. By the end of March, more than half of the people pledging New Year’s resolutions had fallen from the bandwagon.” How can we then make promises to ourselves that are practical and worth keeping, especially to help our body and mind health?
